Angry Bike Buried

i got this funny picture as an email forward.
The mail says the bike was parked at that place in 1980 somewhere in Kerala and the owner is in Gulf... dont know how far that is right.
Also i wonder how can someone wait and see a motor bike being burried by a tree.

Had it been a creeper we could still digest something like that happening. But a tree neatly confining and realigning to the bike's body contour is too hard to digest. Good imagination though.

I dont this pic is from Kerala....It is not a RD350...Check out the front suspension/shocks.Also to my knowledge RD did not have alloys. Check out that silencer on the left side...

The engine doesnt look like it belongs to an RD...

Engine resembles the bullet... I haven't seen it, but have heard of an Enfield bike called Fury, which was the first with alloys...(but came too early in our market)

Looks like a Yamaha or a Honda parallel twin 4-stroke bike.

It is not RD . It may not be Enfield Fury as well, just because it was launched after 1985 for sure and the authour of the thread claims the bike was left as is on 1980!.
